Two-Day Symposium on Molecular Pathology Diagnostics and Translational Research

The Two-Day Symposium on Molecular Pathology Diagnostics and Translational Research will again broaden the spectrum of the European Congress of Pathology. The symposium will take place on Monday, 9 September 2019 and Tuesday, 10 September 2019.

Our increasing knowledge of the molecular basis of disease opens the doors to new therapy options for cancer patients. The use of molecular data nowadays directly impacts patient treatment. The major goals for scientists working together with pathologists and clinicians in the field are to provide high-quality molecular diagnostics but at the same time to translate basic research discoveries into clinical practice.

The symposium will address and discuss current advances but also challenges and problem-solving approaches in the field of molecular pathology. Not only molecular biologists but also pathologists and other participants are more than welcome to join this symposium.

Topics include:

  • Preanalytics
  • Immunooncology: update on clinical studies and biomarkers
  • NGS – beyond mutation testing
  • Bioinformatics with focus on mutational signatures
  • Quality assurance and guidelines in molecular pathology
  • Novel technologies

Organisers of the symposium:

  • Erik Jan Dubbink, The Netherlands
  • Frederick Klauschen, Germany
  • Marjolijn Ligtenberg, The Netherlands
  • Sabine Merkelbach-Bruse, Germany
  • Etienne Rouleau, France
  • Cristina Teixido, Spain
  • Bastiaan Tops, The Netherlands
